Samsung is still testing the Oreo software update for the Galaxy S8 devices and recently released the final fifth beta to users of the Galaxy Beta Program. A final version should be available by this month end, hopefully.
The leaked beta, which a Reddit user claims to have received, contains some cool new features. Firstly, the update has the January Android security patch, which is great. And then, it also includes a new boot logo and is faster and smoother than before.
The most important new feature, however, is the inclusion of Dolby Atmos. This surround sound technology improves the audio output of the device, especially when using headphones. Now, the user has also given us the firmware files for both the devices so you can install them manually if you like.
Before downloading and installing this beta update, make sure your device is the Snapdragon variant and is running on the BQL1 Oreo beta. You can manually install the update via Recovery. We recently told you that several locked variants of the device were also cleared by the Wi-Fi Alliance with Oreo onboard. Also, just earlier today, the Galaxy Note 8 started receiving the Oreo update.
